Tuition grants now available for adult career certification programs at Great Oaks

A new career and new life are a bit closer for some in Clermont and Hamilton County.  Partial tuition awards are now available from Ohio Means Jobs for local residents who want to earn a career certification at a Great Oaks Career Campus, including Live Oaks Career Campus in Milford, Scarlet Oaks in Sharonville, or Diamond Oaks in Dent.

The tuition grants are income-based; adults who are earning up to 200% of the federal poverty level may qualify.  The grants could cover up to half of the cost of attending; other state and federal financial aid is also available.

In 11 months or less, students can become certified in any of more than a dozen career fields, including auto collision, automotive service, construction, dental assisting, electro-mechanical maintenance, heavy equipment operations, HVAC, medical office, computer technician or networking, and more.  Many classes are offered in the evening, to allow students to continue working.  Classes begin in August.

The funds are limited, and applications for fall are now being accepted.

The tuition grants are made possible through local Ohio Means Jobs Centers and the Workforce Investment Opportunities Act (WOIA).

Information sessions about Great Oaks career programs and registration are held regularly at Scarlet Oaks. Information sessions for the 900 Hour Programs (2017-18 school year) have ended. Click here for more information or call Great Oaks at 513.771.8881.

Residents of other southwestern Ohio counties may also qualify for WOIA school grants for career training.  To find out if you qualify, call the Ohio Means Jobs Center in your county:
